Bienerstrasse 8
 

In March 1938 the Gestapo Innsbruck was officially established at 1, Herrengasse and its head was the Bavarian criminologist Dr. Wilhelm Harster. Between March 1938 and May 1939 the headquarters of the Gestapo was moved to 8, Bienerstrasse - today's administration centre of the Austrian Federal Railways.

On the night of the pogrom many Jews were taken to Bienerstrasse and imprisoned there.

In 1939 the Gestapo moved back to Herrengasse and remained there till May 1945.
